National School Counseling Week 2014, "School Counseling: Building Magical Futures," will be celebrated from Feb. 3-7, 2014, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems.
National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), highlights the tremendous impact school counselors have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
"School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career awareness in post-secondary options and personal/social skills,” said Kwok-Sze Wong, Ed.D., ASCA executive director. “Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success."
